Saving You Money
In Saving You Money, we wrap this week the way we always do with all things free in Freebie Friday! Tonight, you can feast your eyes on free art dating back half a century. Art enthusiasts and even those with just a casual interest will love the city's Retro Metro exhibit. Every featured piece, like these RCA Studio B photos, is from the early 60's.
Joe Pagetta with NPT says, "I love these photos Roy Orbison of course how amazing he looks and then Chet Atkins. I love these photos especially because it makes you realize how vibrant the studio was back then."
The showcase features NPT's old film camera, the Punch and Judy puppets from the Nashville Children's Theatre and old playbills plus dozens more pieces of Nashville's 50 year old collection.
Jennifer Cole with Metro Arts explains, "This is the city's art collection and so we think this is important that everyone has access to that regardless of their ability to pay."
The exhibit is interactive with a playlist available on the free app Sound Cloud. The music, also from the early 60's comes from the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum and the Nashville Symphony.
Cole says, "Some of the best experiences I had as a kid were free things I did with my parents. They are the things I remember and they weren't high brow they weren't at big museums, but they were art in the community." Art, music and culture are the heartbeat of Music City and art lovers say by looking back, we can dream a future canvas sprinkled with even more creativity. The exhibit is open through the end of April at the Metro Office Building on Second Avenue South. For days and times, visit Foxlinks at Fox17.com.
One other Freebie tonight is the Belmont Mansion. It's the second largest antebellum home still in existence and it's been newly restored. Admission is normally $10, but you can get in free this Sunday, St. Patrck's Day from 1 til 4.
